We Set the Pace
We Set The Pace is an organization that encourages youth to use their passion, discover their purpose, and use that knowledge to prepare for the future. Started in 2018 by Haley Bishop, We Set the Pace will create and carry out several initiatives to help the youth in our communities. The first initiative is Spikes for the Soul.
